Ive been waiting for this one to be finished and I know a lot of other people had it on their radar. Im pretty surprised weve seen no talk of it, release passed me by 5/9/11. I remember seeing a video of the water effects back in 2008. Some of you may have played a console version. This is a rework that includes new levels, 70% of the game is new and previously existing levels have been redone.
Remember this.

Anyway its up on Steam for 11.99 and totally worth every penny.
Ran great on my system but could have been better my 280 is showing it's age, Im sure the 5xxs will eat it up.
Gameplay was fun, similar to Tomb Raider style with puzzles, shooting, climbing and what not.

2048x1536 reduced 50% with crap jpeg compression.
Seeing the water in motion is a whole other thing.
More shots are in the spoiler for those that don't want to view 33 nice screenshots.

I was told only FizzyX by Nvidia could do good water effects?!?!? My perception of reality is altered!

This is the first game i am aware of that supports MLAA ingame. Gameplay wise it is above average but it looks so damn good in motion.

At this point what isn't?? Brink looks like a PS2 port. I'd rather play ET on the Atari 2600 than Brink.

8.99 in the U.K. via steam, might be worth a look.

Just bought it and so far it's running decently on my computer at max settings, not forcing AA or anything, but two of the more intense rushing water scenes dropped the framerate down to 25.

I read a not-so-favorable almost-review at rockpapershotgun, but so far I haven't run into much trouble. It sounds like it's gonna be a rather short game, but the price and coolness factor of seeing this water act fairly realistically makes me okay with that

I wonder if this would even be playable on my M5650 and i7 Q720. It's handles Borderlands with a mix of low and medium settings.

I may have to give this a try, the price is certainly right.

Looks cool. I'm crying for another Tomb Raider game.

The game is fun but its not a must buy either. The only thing that looks good is the water effects, the models and animations are horrible. PC Only gamers will cry at the textures as well... it's not a pretty game, but it is fun.

BTW the game plays better with a controller, I got annoyed quickly with the K+M controls.
